Fun at the dentist

Last week, Phil and I headed out at 6:15 am to go to the dentist and get his wisdom teeth out. I know a lot of people get wisdom teeth out and it's kinda a big deal, but not really. Phil's case was a bit more interesting: one of the teeth was impacted (growing in sideways) and was growing in his jaw bone! They literally had to cut into the bone, cut the tooth into pieces, and remove it. Yikes!!

The staff found out I was a nursing student so when I went in back to get him they explained all the drugs they had given to him. Quite the cocktail! Thankfully he doesn't remember a thing, but now he is on soft foods for 6 weeks!
